the george w. bush administration took office in 2001, the altair voyager was caed the condoleezza rice. dr. rice was a long time board member of chevron when george w. bush hired her to be the national security adviser. she had a tanker named after her. yeah, the former oil executive president picked the ceo of halliburton to be vice president and the board member of a chevron who had a tanker named after her to be national security advicer. it was a different time. pity poor chevron because when the bush administration took office, chevron faced the prospect of having one of its oil tankers floating around the middle east or off the coast of nigeria or something with the american national security adviser's name painted in big letters on the side of their tanker. that's awkward. that was awkward even before iraq. so chevron decided in 2001 they would change the name of the condoleezza rice. it would no longer be the condoleezza rice, it would instead being the altair voyager, which is the name of a star, a noncontroversial star. now the woman who once had her name painted or so it would s
george w. bush's drunk driving arrest that was revealed that began before the 2000 campaign and came close to costing him the election. romney has more people. they did this with him -- as smart people. they did this with him. things like the swiss bank accounts, bermuda, luxemburg, the tax rates -- romney went right through the stop sign. his self-absorption with money was so deep and pervasive -- this is a man who has been running for president for most of the 21st century. this is not something that just jumped out at him. he has allowed barack obama to put him squarely on the defensive. as far as jobs are concerned, one figure to remember. there were more jobs created last year under barack obama in the private sector that under the eight years of george w. bush's presidency in the private sector. >> even "the wall street journal" editorial-page said that romney has squandered this summer because he let obama define him as a wealthy elite is, and then they excoriated him for allowing him to be shown on his jets be in front of the mansion on the lake. >> the president's plan is no

romney. secondly, her whole connection is with george w. bush, whose foreign policy and war in iraq are considered a disaster. they cost the republican party both houses in 2006, and the presidency in 2008. why would you do it? what exactly does she bring some what state does she bring? >> because of the cabinet post that she held, the fact that she worked for sandy berger, colin powell, bob zoellick. >> she didn't work for sandy berger, did she? >> she was part of sandy berger's generation. >> i don't think she's that old. >> i'm not an authority on herbicide okay grief. she worked at the hoover institution. the woman is a brilliant woman. >> when we were with nixon in '68, there was a point where he was way down. he was tied with humphrey, and you take the safe pick. >> is it safe to say that everybody on this panel is poo- pooing, except me, a possible candidacy? >> yes. >> as a running mate? >> not as a rung mate. she's phot got many great qualifications but not for this ticket. >> not for this particular. >> poo-pooing. >> okay who will be romney's vice presidential running mat
presidents not doing this. but george w. bush did it, john mccain did it and presidential candidates did it. i think republicans need to end this tradition of appearing before the naacp to try and reach black voters. the type of black voters who may be open to voting republican are not at naacp conventions. you can go into communities and visit churches and visit small businesses. you can visit charter schools and so forth. you can advertise on black radio and black television programming. that's how you can reach people. there is no need to go before groups like this and try and seek black votes that way. i don't think it has been a very good strategy. >> what about getting credit? does he get credit foregoing into the liberal group like this saying, look, here is my argument on health care. here is my argument on education. get credit for bravery for reaching out and saying these are my convictions. you need to hear these. >> i just think his time and effort would be better spent on more persuadable people than who he is addressing there. he said all of the right things. >> amazing. >> th

for president george w. bush. paul begala is a democratic strategist and adviser to a pro-obama super pac. paul, let's begin with you. as you've heard, the obama campaign was basically saying mitt romney is either a criminal or he's a liar. and romney's campaign is calling on the obama campaign to apologize. saying it's demeaning to the office of the president. do you think, in fact, an apology is necessary, paul? >> no, toughen up, mitt. this is campaigns. this is politics. here's what thomas jefferson campaign said about john adams. they called him a hideous her farm ra diedic character. adams said worse things about jefferson. if you're not tough enough to stand up to stephanie cutter, how are you going to stand up to vladimir putin, i mean, come on. >> even if it turns out to be completely untrue, what they say. >> no, this is completely true. there are signed documents that list him as the ceo. there are other documents that he signed that are sworn that said he had nothing to do with the company at the time. his public financial disclosure documents. one of them is wrong. either he was th
're look at is much more the george w. bush campaign in 2004. >> the accusations that john kerry -- >> reporter: he's talking about the swiftboat campaign. in which john kerry was demonized over what his campaign considered an attribute. his decorated service as a soldier in vietnam. the swiftboat ads, backed by a group of pro-bush veterans, questioned the democratic challenger's conduct in the war, his anti-war activities later and his patriotism. kerry was slow to respond and never very effective in refuting their claims. even though his critics offered little in the way of proof. he lost the election of course. for many democrats, swiftboating became a catch-all term for any unfair, untrue, personal assault on a candidate. >> romney's companies -- >> reporter: but if the president is troubled by the comparison of his bain attacks to the republican swiftboating, he's not showing it. >> when you're president, everything is called into question. >> reporter: romney has been spurred to hit back fast. >> as much as a presidential election is a referendum on the incumbent, the cllen
establishment becoming secretary of state under president george w. bush. >> condi is very interesting, very skilled in foreign policy, very charismatic. a lot of people like her. she'sen seen as a political figure -- she's not seen as a political figure which is a plus and has never been a candidate which is a minus. >> another potential minus, she was at the center of a number of bush administration controversies and when it comes to social issues, she may be left to the party's base. most running mates are not chosen until right before the party convention which is a month away. so is all this hype about condoleezza rice just that, hype? republican strategist jack burkeman joined us earlier today on fox 5. i asked if there was any chance romney would choose condoleezza as his running mate. >> no, zero. the reason is just what you said. she's left of center on social issues. it would be almost impossible. the most important thing for romney is that he get a solid social conservative because the big problem has is the conservative evangelical base doesn't like him. so if you go with someone

was appointed by president george w. bush to head the federal deposit insurance corporation, the fdic. now as senior advisor to the pew charitable trust, sheila bair has just organized a private group of financial experts called the systemic risk council. among its members, former fed chairman paul volcker, former senators bill bradley and alan simpson, john reed, once the chairman of citigroup, and brooksley born, the former cftc chairman who back in the 1990s accurately predicted an economic meltdown. its mission, to prevent the banking industry from scuttling the reforms created by the dodd-frank act, and, hopefully, prevent another crash. she has a book coming out in late september about the need for reform called "taking the bull by the horns." she's also written two books for children about money and entrepreneurship. "rock, brock and the savings shock" and "isabel's car wash." sheila bair, welcome. >> thank you. happy to be here. >> if you were trying to help some of those young people that you write for, understand this business called libor, how would you begin? what's the "once u
to the president as "your president." i did not agree with everything he did, but george w. bush was my president. i never voted for him, but ma -- ronald reagan was my president. i disagreed with him most of the time, but george h. w. bush was my president. i am sad that in this country, that for whatever reason we do not have one president at represents all of us. i think we should get beyond that rhetoric, and frankly, beyond this bill, to talk about what really matters in this country, which is jobs, as you said. >> i am amazed at how much congressman fox and i have in common. i think the thing that bothers me about what she said is this notion of freedom. my idea of freedom is freedom of speech, freedom of religion. it is not the freedom to not have health care. the problem is, i really look at it as a responsibility point of view. republicans often talk about that. in other words, it is not fair, if you will, that people not take responsibility for their own lives. why should so many of us be paying these large premiums and bills for people who do not decide to have health care? -- health i
